The Mayo Clinic Breast Cancer Book is the trusted resource for anyone wanting reliable information about this dreaded disease. Mayo Clinic set out to provide comprehensive and up-to-date facts in easy-to-understand language. They've succeeded in this handbook for those who've been diagnosed, or for those who want to give sensitive and helpful support to someone with breast cancer. The Mayo Clinic Breast Cancer Book stands out for its tone of companionship, as well as for the many patient stories that appear throughout the book.
This straightforward, yet approachable resource will empower all who are affected by breast cancer. Here are facts about the disease, but also suggestions and inspiration for working effectively with one's doctors and caregivers. This volume offers solid tools for coping with the many uncertainties and decisions that need to be made when one is diagnosed.
"Comprising the expertise of numerous specialists, this exhaustive study of breast cancer is an excellent source of information for those struggling with the disease, as well as an invaluable guide for family members helping a loved one through the diagnosis, treatment, and recovery process. The Mayo Clinic experts provide everything from a basic understanding of cancer, to preventative measures, screening technologies, biopsy methods, a guide to processing the emotions that accompany a diagnosis, current and prospective treatment options, life after cancer, and much more — all in technical yet accessible language. Interspersed throughout are helpful diagrams (one, for example, shows the difference between invasive and noninvasive cancers) and personal testimonials that highlight the many faces and possible courses of breast cancer. The closing chapters discuss additional topics that will interest patients and their families, such as handling the mental toll and anxiety of cancer, dealing with the side effects of treatments, and complementary medical therapies and their efficacies. Highly recommended for anyone involved in the fight against breast cancer — patients, doctors, family members, and researchers included. Illus. (Oct.)"
